There was a town next to a river. The people there had a lot of water. But they wasted it. That made the Sky angry. It said, "If you waste water, I will take it away from you." But the people didn't listen.

河邊有一座城,城里的人們都不缺水,但是他們卻無節制地浪費水。上天對此很生氣,對城里的居民說:“你們要是再浪費水,我就把水都移走。”但人們并沒有改變。

When the season changed from spring to summer, the clouds disappeared. The bright sun was hot and made the river dry. There was no water available. People asked, "When will the rain fall?"

天氣也從春季進入了夏季,天空萬里無云,火辣的太陽把河水都曬干了。人們無水可用,于是問道:“什么時候能降雨?”

The Sky's response was, "You don't appreciate water. You waste it, and now I will never make rain again."

上天回答說:“你們不珍惜水,浪費水,我永遠都不會給你們降雨。”

A boy determined that this wasn't fair. He thought of a solution. He asked the Sky to race him. He said, "If I get to the top of that hill before your rain can form puddles, you must fill our river."

一個男孩覺得上天這樣做很不公平,于是想了一個辦法。他要求上天與自己來一場比賽。他對上天說:“如果我跑到了那個山頂,而你的降雨還沒有形成水坑,你就必須要把河水還給我們。”

The Sky laughed. "Little boy, I am the Sky. I am above everything else. You cannot beat me." But the boy knew he would win.

上天笑了:“小孩,我是天神,我是最強大的,你贏不了我的。”但男孩知道自己能贏得這場比賽。

When the race began, the boy ran forward. The Sky started raining on the hill. But puddles did not form there. When it rained on the hill, the water went down.

比賽開始后,男孩開始往前跑。上天開始往山上降雨,但是山上是不可能積水的,因為水落到地上就會往下流。

The Sky kept raining. The water flowed down into the river. When the boy reached the top of the hill, the river was full. The people began to celebrate. It was the highest level the river had ever been at before.

上天持續降雨,落下的雨水都流進了河里。當男孩跑到山頂時,小河已經注滿了水。人們開始為此慶祝,這是有史以來最高的水位了。

The Sky was angry. "A boy can't beat me! I won't fill your river," it said.

上天惱羞成怒地說:“我不可能被一個小孩打敗!我不會往你們的河里注水。”

Now the boy laughed. "It doesn't matter whether you want to fill it or not," he said. "You already did." The Sky looked at the full river.

小男孩笑著說:“你愿不愿意都沒關系,河水已經注滿了。”上天看了看注滿水的小河。

You tricked me, it said. It asked the people, "Do you appreciate water now?"
